It also needs constant updating and windows 8 is terrible. The battery life is also terrible

  • Summary: The main reason I purchased this laptop is due to the fact it boasts a 2 second start up. I think the only time I've experienced that is the first time I turned it on. This ultrabook takes more time to turn on than my computer from the early 90s. It also needs constant updating and windows 8 is terrible. The battery life is also terrible. You can get maybe 2 hours out of it. I wish I had kept looking instead of making this purchase.

Poorly made ultrabook

  • Summary: I have had other Asus laptops and they are good. But I am not impressed with this particular model. The shape is awkward, it is not necessary to make it that big, it is a15.6 inch, but the whole size is bigger than a 17 inch laptop, the keys are not very responsive, the hard drive is a cheap brand and very slow, The 24GB SSD can only function as a hibernate re-start, but any Windows 8 hibernate re-start is fast, you don't need a SSD.

I didn't like it

  • Summary: I'm extremely disappointed with this laptop. The screen malfunctions and goes blank constantly. I have to shake it around to make it work again. It does have it's good side. It is light, the design is not that bad. It doesn't overheat. But I still think it was a bad purchase.

A risky buy at best

  • Summary: I hesitate to write this review as I am far from a computer guru, but I feel it necessary to warn potential buyers about this product. Online and fresh out of the box, this unit looks like a great deal. It has all the processing power and memory needed for basic operation plus some. I enjoyed the smart touch pad that allows the user to control everything from screen zoom to desktop navigation in one convenient location.

  • Summary: This was delivered on time. Meet most of my requirements except the battery which lasts only 2.5 hours on a full charge though i managed to get about 4 hrs on battery saver with low display. Otherwise the machine is superb and the sound especially is very good.

A good laptop ruined by Window 8

Jonathan Scott-Smith, Amazon

  • Summary: This would be a good machine except it comes with Windows 8 as the only OS option. Frankly if I had known how dreadful W8 would be I wouldn't have bought it.

  • Summary: The battery backup of this asus laptop is too low....just 3 hours... other ultrabooks from asus have a better battery backup mostly 6+ hours... Also the screen resolution is less 1366x768...others give you 1600x900 or 1920x1080...
